Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Released during my freshman year in college, this got a lot of playing time because I thought I should be listening to it. To be fair, I should have been listening to it and it certainly helped me grow as a musician and a music scholar. But I feel safe in saying that 18 year old me would much rather have been listening to New Wave music.
